That’s a wrap!
Did you get down to the Eat! Vancouver 2013 – Food and Cooking Festival?
The show is done for another year!
How could a show get better every year? Last years show was very good but the show keeps growing in offerings, foodie love and the culinary masters that Food Network Canada, Fulcrum Events and all of the other sponsors that support and contribute to the show bring to the table for all of us to enjoy!
You can not go to a show like this come out without feeling well fed, well entertained and more confident about the inner chef in you!
There was an abundance of great vendor booths all showing or offering tastings of their wonderful products….a wide array of culinary tools and something for everybody!
Gulten Free? yes!
Tastes from around the world? yes !
The celebrity stage was bubbling with energetic culinary masters showing and talking about their creations as well as great interaction with the crowd!
I was lucky enough to catch both Chef Rob Feenie and Chef Chuck Hughes shows and was entertained from word 1!
Some quotes from the crowds: one question to Chef Hughes was “what would you say would make us a better cook at home?”
Chef Hughes thoughtful answer?
A good knife (not something you can buy in an 8 pack, but a good approx $150 knife with a “steel” for sharpening and you won’t believe how it will improve the flavor of your food!
also, think like a chef, prepare like a chef! Like when you see us lay out the ingredients on tv, Pre-measured etc… That is your best plan for making things taste and work out the best!
Whether you wanted to try new flavors or new sips, the offering was abundant!
Fun seemed to be had by all!
A few sips of something new with a friend….
a bite of something good between some foodies friends…..
All in all I have to commend Eat! Vancouver and its great list of sponsors as well as the hard work put into a busy 3 days by the exhibitors and chefs as well as all of the support staff….
Be sure to make it out to the show next year if you weren’t lucky enough to take part this year….. You won’t be disappointed!
You Gotta Try This!
